지금까지 내가 항상 여러분 가운데서 어떻게 행하였는지를 여러분도 아는 바니 곧 모든 겸손과 눈물이며
보라 이제 나는 성령에 매여
수고하여 약한 사람들을 돕고 또 주 예수께서 친히 말씀하신 바 주는 것이 받는 것보다 복이 있다 하심을 기억하여야 할지니라
잠들기 전 남편과 함께 가정예배를 드리며
#사도행전 20장 가운데 마음에 깊히 와닿은
19절 22절 35절
서로 나눈 묵상내용은 마음에 기록하고
Your circulatory system is truly a wonder of god’s creation and a testament to his divine engineering. in order to keep you alive, your heart will beat around 100,000 times a day, pumping about 2,000 gallons of oxygen and nutrient-rich blood throughout your body. thankfully, all of this occurs without you ever having to think about it!
it’s been estimated that humans have around 60,000 miles of blood vessels stretching throughout their bodies! to put this into perspective, the circumference of the earth is approximately 25,000 miles. this means the total length of blood vessels within your own body would stretch around the entire earth nearly two and a half times!! that is an incomprehensible volume of tissue to fit into such a small package. and yet it is arranged with such eloquent precision as to leave plenty of room for the numerous other organs and bones.
perhaps even more impressive than the sheer quantity of vessels in your body is the highly efficient and organized function of these life-sustaining tubules. the complex network of arteries and veins carry oxygen-rich blood to the body while simultaneously gathering various waste products to be expelled. an intricate system of capillaries helps with the sophisticated exchange of oxygen and waste, keeping our organs healthy and functioning.
leviticus 17:11 says, “for the life of the flesh is in the blood…” and we can clearly see the provision of god in our life-giving circulatory system. exhibiting a level of precision and design that could not possibly have arisen through a process of slow and gradual change. this is obviously an irreducibly complex and special network upon which the entire body is desperately dependent.
